convert lp's to mp3's

I have over 1000 records many of which I would like to turn into digital files. I am trying to figure out the best way to go about this. At the end of the day my dream is to get them all onto an ipod. anyone have any thoughts.

CONVERT LP'S TO MP3'S

I am in the same predicament and I think I'll invest in a MP3 recorder. I also have 300 to 400 disco 12" records that I can't throw out until I can convert them. Keep the dialogue flowing.

I suppose you have the hardware to play the records.

What you need is problaly time more than anything else. If you have a tape "rec out" on the hifi; connect that to the "line-in" of the sound card in your computer. Then all you need is some software to capture the music as wave file. I believe there are freebie but I personally use "audio cleaning lab" by Magix (about $40). Just post back if you have more question. I am not certain if the latest version will convert mp3 for you or not. If not, then another step is needed. Good luck.
